60 Year Customisation Project

Throughout the sixty years of the brand, the Fred Perry shirt has always been the iconic piece; the standard bearer for our Laurel Wreath emblem. Over six remarkable decades some of the most influential figures in fashion, music and sport have worn the shirt, and many have become de facto ambassadors for the brand. As part of our 60 Year anniversary celebrations, we've compiled a list of our 60 most loyal and distinguished fans and requested their participation in a charity fund raising exercise. Designers, musicians, artists and sports people were sent a reproduction of the original 1952 Fred Perry shirt and asked to personalise the shirt with a birthday message or full-blown customisation.

All shirts will be displayed online in the 60 Year microsite at fredperry.com, in-store and at anniversary events before being auctioned for charity later in the year, with all proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. In collaboration with Dover Street Market and designed by renowned set designer Andy Hillman; Fred Perry will present the first 20 customisations exclusively at Dover Street Market in London on January 26th. The installation will travel to DSM Ginza and I.T. Beijing Market after the London presentation.

Blur 21: The Exhibition

It's been a busy year for Blur, with the release of new material Under the Westway and The Puritan and the small matter of a certain closing concert to prepare for. After working on individual projects - ranging from opera to cheese production – the band have regrouped for what may well be one of the most poignant years in their 21 as a band. In celebration, the Londonewcastle Project Space has teamed up with EMI and Spotify to present Blur 21: The Exhibition. The collection of over 70 images follows the band from the release of their debut album Leisure in 1991, with many never-before-seen shots taken by the likes of Penny Smith, Paul Postle and Banksy.

Curated by Dave Brolan, a leading expert on music photography, the exhibition includes shots from the group’s earliest beginnings as ‘Seymour’, through the 1990s and the height of Britpop to their current status as BRIT award winners for their Outstanding Contribution to Music. The varied selection of images includes stage shots, artwork and now iconic portraits, making this a must for fans of the band and Britpop aficionados.

Blur 21: The Exhibition will take place at the Londonewcastle Project Space, 28 Redchurch St, London, from the 27th July - 14th August 2012. In collaboration with EMI Music and Spotify.
